Sherwood Forest Stream Restoration


As a part of the County's effort to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams and enhance aquatic habitat, the County is collaborating with the Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, on a stream restoration project. Approximately 2,904ft of the Sherwood Forest tributary from Locksley Rd. to where the stream intersects with the mainstem of Northwest Branch will be restored. The restoration project includes stabilizing eroded stream banks, restore stable habitat, create wetlands, and reforest around the stream.

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project.
